Let’s be honest, Le Metier de Beaute has the best designer collaborations. Recently we’ve seen them work with Oscar de la Renta, but back in 2010 they had a major thing going with Marchesa.
For Fall 2010 Le Metier de Beaute and Marchesa teamed up to launch a knock your socks off collection which included 4 Lip Gloss Duos. Today, I have one of those duos to share with you – L’Embrasse/Le Passion Double Entendre Lip Gloss.
L’Embrasse/Le Passion Double Entendre Lip Gloss (A unity between a bittersweet chocolate and blushing bronze) is a pair of 2 beautifuly different yet complimenting shades of gloss. From what I can gather from online search, I believe the pink side is Le Passion, and the bronze side is L’Embrasse. I will update this post if I can figure it out for sure. While small (net wt 0.21fl. oz.), this gloss duo is perfect to slip in your clutch or pocket for quick, on-the-go touch ups. The formula is non-stick, glossy, and sizzling!
Best Things in Beauty also has swatches of this same lip duo, as well as pictures from the website of the other 3 duos.
Retail on the Le Metier de Beaute Double Entendre Lip Gloss is/was $38. Check out Temptalia for official information on the Marchesa for Le Metier de Beaute Collection for Fall 2010.
This product doesn’t seem to be available online anymore, but I did purchase mine rather recently during the Neiman Marcus Beauty Event 2011. It was gone from the site then had popped back on so I happily dove on it. The price point is rather high, especially for so little product, but I find myself disappointed that I couldn’t get my hands on the rest of these lip duos. I would have REALLY liked that Sheer Illuminator Pen too =(
FYI there is currently (as of this post) a beauty offer on the Neiman Marcus website for Le Metier de Beaute. If you purchase $250 in LMdB products (very easy to do, especially with their new skincare line!) you get a free Artemis Indelible Ink Eye Liner (which is freaking amazing) and Aphrodite Automatic Slim Liner.
